  1. DO NOT USE THIS ON BOSSES!
    People expect this to be instantly OP. But it is NOT!
    For this to stop being weak, die easily and have low dps you need to actually level it. Now without the tons of def / hp upgrades, the attack upgrades, damage increase and the individual skill upgrades it’s super weak and killing bosses takes forever.

    Only do so when you have spend a large amount of exp getting 2/3 or so of the upgrades, you can’t expect this to get even remotely close to good players dps otherwise.
    If it would, all the strong upgrades would mean when maxed it can oneshot everything.

    In the first place using it on bosses means you die or it ends before the boss is dead and you get 0 exp, you just wasted your time.
    When used on mobs they die fast no matter what and you get a lot of exp.

    1. Early bosses are extremely easy with it I got an eq for a gwanada in the middle of a desert exploration run on hard(using a lv23 gunner) and the gwanada lasted about five seconds

  2. like Photon Blast, I’m not sure how to activate Dark Blast (not using it, just activate it, so it can be use), some time it fast to activate, some time very slow. perhaps some players knows better on this one?
